Product Description

Some churches have "it" and some don't. Congregations that do have this powerful, life-changing force thrive and grow---sometimes even in the most difficult circumstances. But what is "it" exactly? Blending in-your-face honesty with off-the-wall humor, Groeschel seeks to define the elusive "success gene" that provides spiritual balance for leaders and helps ministries flourish. 160 pages, hardcover from Zondervan.

Publisher's Description

When Craig Groeschel founded, the congregation met in a borrowed two-car garage, with ratty furnishings and faulty audiovisual equipment. But people were drawn there, sensing a powerful, life-changing force Groeschel calls 'It.' What is It, and how can you and your ministry get---and keep---It? Combining in-your-face honesty with off-the-wall humor, this book tells how any believer can obtain It, get It back, and guard It. One of today's most innovative church leaders, Groeschel provides profile interviews with Mark Driscoll, Perry Noble, Tim Stevens, Mark Batterson, Jud Wilhite, and Dino Rizzo. This lively book will challenge churches and their leaders to maintain the spiritual balance that results in experiencing It in their lives.

    The Best Book So Far On Doing Our Part In Ministry
    July 25, 2013
    If someone told me they were going to start a church or just got hired to pastor a church, this would be the FIRST book I would recommend. This book is not about strategies that take precedence over the work of God; rather, it is about doing our part as we partner with God. This book is a must.

    Last night I finished reading it by Craig Groeshel. I would not be telling the truth if I did not communicate that this book literally made me cry. I have lost sleep over what Pastor Groeshel illustrates and brings up. Well. . . thats not exactly accurate. Repentance and prayer could hardly be called a loss of sleep.This book is more than a very creative way for the author to say it more times than normal circumstances allow. This is a wonderful and masterful look at Spirit filled, Christ focused ministry that honors God. (I know that seems a little redundant but oh well.)I am sorry to say that I only have two thumbs to put way up in the air. But after you read it there will be two more.I would strongly recommend you read this 200 page volume if you are serious about ministry that pleases God. If you are not serious about Christ centered ministry, then I beg you to read it.

    I think evaluation is good for churches. Unfortunately, many churches don't evaluate their ministry because they view it as something that is "nonspiritual". I didn't think this author was making it a numbers issue at all but like many other books I've read IT has to do with church health and anything that is healthy grows. Thus a church that has IT will grow but that is not the end all be all message in this book. I think its a great and easy read for leaders who are not afraid to look at their ministries and say something is wrong or something is right with what we have going here!

    Does your church have "it"? This book will help leaders relect on whether or not their church has it. This is an open and honest look at what can be done when leaders are willing to work together in innovative ways. If a leader is not willing to fail then they are failing to lead.
